A Visit From Mom Mom and Pop Pop

Mom Mom and Pop Pop came for a visit last week and we had a very nice time.  One of the places we went while they were here is a zoo in a city not far from our home.  It was a beautiful day, although a bit warm.  Here are the pictures, mostly taken by Night Owl ...

(Night Owl holds Beany up to see the penguins being fed)

(Otters are my favorite!)

(This fellow seemed less than enthused)

(Pop Pop)

(Dad and Mom Mom - I'm not sure what they are looking at)

(Builder and Social Butterfly, learning about lion skulls)

(An air conditioned spot to take a rest!)

The trip to the zoo was a perfect ending to an enjoyable visit from Mom Mom and Pop Pop.  They are headed west now, and in our prayers and they make the long journey to the other side of the U.S.!

I was happy to discover your blog today. I was unable to find a contact link. I hope it's OK that I'm contacting you through a public comment. I've developed an educational program for Windows called SpellQuizzer that helps children learn their spelling and vocabulary words without the battle that parents often have getting them to sit down and write them out while the parents dictate to them. The parent enters the child's spelling words into the software making a sound recording of each word. Then the software helps the child practice his or her words. It really helped my children with their weekly spelling lists.

I would appreciate your reviewing SpellQuizzer in Academy of the Good Shepherd. If you are interested in hosting a giveaway of a SpellQuizzer license I'd be happy to supply a free license to the winner. You can learn more about the program at http://www.SpellQuizzer.com. There's a video demo you can watch at http://www.spellquizzer.com/SpellQuizzer-Demo.htm and a community site where SpellQuizzer users can share their spelling lists with one another (http://www.SpellQuizzer.com/Community). Finally, there's a page targeted to homeschooling families at http://www.spellquizzer.com/spelling-software-for-homeschoolers.htm. I'd be happy to send you a complimentary license for the software. Please let me know if you are interested.

Thank you very much!
